What do you want to be for Halloween?

What do you want to be?
What do you want to be?

I want to be a vampire.
I want to be a witch.
I want to be a scarecrow.
I want to be a cat.

I want to be a vampire.
I want to be a witch.
I want to be a scarecrow.
I want to be a cat.

What do you want to be?
What do you want to be?

I want to be a skeleton.
I want to be a mummy.
I want to be a ghost.
I want to be a superhero!

I want to be a skeleton.
I want to be a mummy.
I want to be a ghost.
I want to be a superhero!

Using English from one place in a totally new place is a really great confidence booster for the kids! "Hey, I know that!" is a great line to hear!

So here we have a mash up of the traditional jobs "What do you want to be?" but mixed up with the Happy Halloween monsters!

And just to keep it totally positive and happy it always ends with the Superhero!

I want to be a ghost game!

If you've done the Happy Halloween monsters lesson previously, here's a great game to join the language together.

1. Print and hand out several sheets of the What do you want to be ..... for Halloween? minicards. (One sheet per person isn't too many, just make sure you shuffle them well!)

2. The teacher starts off by putting down one card and saying "Look, there's a .... " plus the word on the card e.g. "Look, there's a ghost!"



3. If anyone else has the same card they can shout out "I want to be a " plus the item and they slap their card down on the pile e.g. here if they have a ghost card they shout out "I want to be a ghost!" and slap it down!

4. The quickest kid to do that can then put down another different one of their cards by saying "Look, there's a .... " plus the name of the card.

5. Repeat from step 3 until all the cards are gone!

It's basically a game of snap, but using the two different phrases makes it sound * really * impressive! (Especially if you have guests in the classroom!) With shouts of "Look, there's a scarecrow!" "I want to be a scarecrow!" "Look there's a vampire!" etc. etc.

As I say just make sure you shuffle the cards well before hand!
